`Review from previous edition This the best textbook I have come across that dedicates enough time and space to describing the underlying physiology of the visual system and why understanding these neural mechanisms is critical to understanding human visual perception... The "conversational" style is great for breaking down the barriers between student's apprehensions and the neuroscientific aspects of the field. ' Nick Barraclough, Department of Psychology, University of Hull `I was very pleased to discover Basic Vision. The style is very engaging, and it covers all the main topics. The explanations are clear and generally well pitched for undergraduates.' Kielan Yarrow, Department of Psychology, City University `The book provides inspiration for anyone with an interest in perception.' Optische Fenomenen, Nov 2012
